What is the Impact statement? Can I include a longer Impact Statement?

A well written Impact Statement is a great way to give your job application strength as it enables the recruiter to quickly identify the strategic value you can add to their organization.

To find and select the best candidate, the employer needs to understand the differences between applicants. The best way to help an employer select you for further consideration is to include meaningful accomplishment statements that feature your individual strengths.

The Impact Statement is meant to be a statement and not a paragraph. You want to catch the attention of hiring managers. Try asking yourself, what sets you apart from other candidates?

Here's a short video about how to write an Impact Statement

IMPORTANT NOTE: Any changes to your Impact Statement will be viewable by the hiring managers of any past job applications on CharityVillage. Your Impact Statement should focus on your authentic self and not the specific position you are applying to.
